Leave a legacy

Your life, your legacy
Your Life. Your Legacy.

The difference you make

No matter where you live in the world, life revolves around doing the best you can for yourself, and your family.

But for the many millions of people living in poverty, every day is a challenge: to be healthy, to get an education, to put food on the table, to stay alive.

Oxfam is passionate about putting an end to poverty. About giving people the support they need to turn their lives around, stand on their own two feet, care for their children, and build a future free from poverty.

Leaving a legacy gift to Oxfam will mean that, together, we can continue to create a world that is fair for everyone.

The kinds of gifts you can leave to Oxfam

  • A specific sum of money (Pecuniary Legacy): If you want to leave a lump sum to Oxfam, you specify this amount in your will.
  • A specific item: Jewellery, a first edition book, or any item that you think will be of some value to Oxfam's work when sold.

Best will in the world week 2014

Best Will in the World Week is an initiative run by MyLegacy which takes place from Monday 20th - Friday 24th October to highlight the importance of leaving a gift in your will and the difference a gift in your will to a charity can make.
During Best Will in the World Week, solicitors across the country offer will consultations for a fee of €50. People interested in making their will, or updating an existing will, are asked to consider leaving a gift to their favourite charity once loved ones have been taken care of.
